Valentine’s Day is upon us. Of course there is always dinner, flowers and movies but let’s vow to do something a little different this year. From chocolate festivals to running in your undies, here is your list of things to do for Vday (for couples and singles!)
For the Adventurous Type: Cupid’s Undie Run
This Saturday, fuel up on liquid courage, strip down, and run around Denver in your underwear, for the children. Cupid’s Undie Run is a mile(ish) run, combined with an awesome party all in the name of charity. Proceeds benefit the Children’s Tumor Foundation and so far Denver has raised over 90,000 (Go Denver!). Did I mention it is going to be 70 degrees this weekend? Perfect pants off weather.
